Rashford back in training after successful surgery

Manchester United ace Marcus Rashford is back in training with the club after being out on recovery following a shoulder surgery.

United released a video of the 23-year-old returning to training yesterday at  Carrington, albeit separate from the group and just doing light jogging and some short pass drills.

Rashford underwent shoulder surgery in the summer following his participation in the Euro 2020 competition with England as they reached a first major cup final since 1966 before losing the trophy on penalties to Italy.

The operation was a success, according to Rashford, who took to social media to share the news around two weeks ago.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said during the weekend that the academy graduate had started some to work on his fitness, as he prepared for a potential return.

“He seemed very happy with the surgery. He’s working in the gym. We see him every day so he’ll be chomping at the bit when it gets nearer to the time when he can come back.”

The shoulder injury bothered the winger throughout most of last season, especially towards the end as he struggled with movement and training.

Despite this, Rashford managed 21 goals and 15 assists across all competitions last season.

The England international missed United’s preseason and the opening games of the 2021-22 season but is back in training ahead of an expected October return.

The Red Devils opened their campaign with a 5-1 win over Leeds united at Old Trafford before being held to a 1-1 draw by Southampton at St Mary’s in their second game of the campaign.

Rashford is expected to return to the first team at around October, and will be competing for a spot in the starting lineup with the likes of Sancho on the flanks.
